It looks like we will meet at the end of the Potomac Division Minicon on Saturday afternoon. If they run us off, we'll decide where to reconvene then, probably someplace with lots of pizza boxes. The Minicon will be at the St Matthews Chruch in Annandale, VA. This is a planning meeting to see where we want to proceed. Hopefully there will be enough interest to proceed.

Here is the link to the Minicon http://home.comcast.net/~Potomac_NMRA/Minicon%202011/Minicon-2011.html

Andy Sperandeo is coming in from Milwaukee to be the featured speaker.

Oh man, that looks good. I wish I could see Paul Dolkos's talk about his B'more layout. He's approaching it very differently than I am, and I'd like to hear more about his perspective.

There seems to be a high level of interest and enthusiasm from the group. Several designs are in the works. Soon we'll have a work meeting to start building. 


One of these days we need to do a joint layout with the B'more oNeTRAK group.

Bernie,

Believe it or not, I am still committed to modeling the C&O in some manner.  That said, I am presently dealing with space constrictions for my door layout, let alone a module for this project.  So, while the A&R door layout still resides at my other house twenty-five miles from my residence and I'm, unfortunately, non-productive on it, I may be able to talk the wife into allowing me to build a 2' x 4' module.  No promises, though, but is there something that I might be able to build in those parameters that could be productive for this project?
